The Open Philanthropy Project recommended two grants totaling $600,000 to the Mass Liberation Project, via Tides Advocacy, to support work on training and organizing for prosecutor accountability. The Mass Liberation Project intends to use these funds to train directly impacted people as organizers and leaders in their communities, to support organizers to set the context for electing and re-electing reform-minded prosecutors, and to provide coaching and guidance to groups, especially those led by formerly incarcerated people.

This falls within our focus area of criminal justice reform.

Note: The first of these grants was awarded in December 2018. This page has been updated to reflect a second grant awarded subsequently, and the “grant amount” above includes both grants.
